Wow this is great Bobber. I was just reading about the Beatles very first BBC appearance which was also the first time they wore suits on stage. I didn't know the recording existed.

I'm hoping to get all of this set.

When the BBC released Live at The BBC 1 & 2 a few years ago I assumed perhaps naively that was pretty much everything worth listening to. This is a massive addition.

First you say that the pickings over the years have been measly. Then you say this is too much music. I don't get your point.

Of course this is only going to appeal to existing fans. Nothing in this that is interesting for new fans to discover. The question is: is that important? There are thousands of existing Beatlesfans all over the world. I'd like to give the existing Beatlesfans of this forum, member or not, the opportunity to get their hands on a series they might like. And it's free: now there's your value for money.

.....all of which goes to show how measly the pickings have been over the years on the official releases.

Two things:

1. This is really only going to appeal to existing fans.

The Beatles circa 2015 are almost invisible to the average Joe on the street.
I certainly NEVER see the group's CDs in my local supermarket, and in record shops other artists' releases are currently much better value (e.g. The Kinks, The Who, Captain Beefheart, Bob Dylan, Dusty Springfield).
The Kinks' "Arthur" 2-CD set is £5, The Beatles' CDs start at £10 and have no extras.

2. I think you can have too much music.....and I think this is too much music.

After shelling Mariupol:

24.01.2015 Видео очевидца сразу после обстрела Мариуполя

The second part of video looks like a Hollywood movie, when aliens came to Earth and started destroying everything, people run.

His head looks a bit too big in the second one to me as well but maybe I'm just looking for it now.

It looks alright to me to be honest. But maybe I am used to big heads.  glassesslip

Thanks Cor.

I'm just passing it through. The credits go to a certain Lord Reith over at bootlegzone.

Volume 3.

Mostly Pop Go The Beatles this time. Music and chat for episodes 2 and 3 was pre-recorded the same day (with ep3 first), but there are indicators here that like many BBC shows the actual broadcast was a mixture of session tapes and live links. In episode 3, Lee Peters apologises for having gotten Ringo's birthday wrong in episode 2 and mentions fans writing in to correct him, something that obviously could not happen if both shows were completely pre-recorded. This happens at other times in the series too. It might also explain why when the series was aired on the World Service in 1964, new narration needed to be provided by another announcer.

While Lee Peters proves to be quite witty, he makes a few snide remarks here and there which makes one wonder whether The Beatles had him booted out and replaced in the next series. In a later volume Paul relates a story about how they arrived at the studio early one day to find the staff all listening to jazz in the control room. So there may have been a bit of jazz snobbery going on.

A few guest appearances by other artists show just how far removed The Beatles were from their contemporaries at this time. An unintentionally funny moment comes when Carter Lewis is obliged to omit the word "damn" from the line "I don't give a damn about a greenback dollar", such was the BBC's stuffiness. For those of a rigid moral nature, more sustenance can be found in track 57.

Just caught the acoustic demo version of John's Watching the Wheels. I like this rougher rollicking version. Brings to mind what the Beatles would have done with it.   Double Fantasy always struck me as over produced. As was the style at the time I suppose.
